OMG, she still looks young!

Sinead was one of my favorites way back in the day and I thought she disappeared into obscurity, but I saw this and it blew me away:

She sounds waaaay more pop than in her old days of alternative music...
And not so young, really:

They dolled her up in the video which certainly does not look like a 47 year old, middle aged woman. She had a lot of years in between where she gained a lot of weight and went gray. I certainly thought that would be her "look" from now on.

Re: OMG, she still looks young!

BTW what surprised me was her sound. Very distant from the music we heard back in 1990.

Re: OMG, she still looks young!

Whoa, my first impression when I saw this was who photoshopped the Dalai Lama. I have mixed views on Sinead, great voice, but strange person. She went from being an alternative musician to pop star to activist to priest and then a friend who's in the music business told me he was working on her album last year and that she still had the voice. She's just a bit of a female Bono for me, attention seeking where it's not warrented, just everytime either she or he open their mouths I feel it's completely insincere

Bono (with his totally idiotic "politically correct" stance) has helped gvmts do some of the worse crimes in history. He is a very very dirty guy.

Care to elaborate on some of those 'worse crimes in history'?

Re: OMG, she still looks young!

Just bear in mind that I come from the balkans. I would not want to elaborate any more than that, since we may enter ugly (political) territories, and I respect ppl who come from different backgrounds and with different views on things.
Anyways, I just think that whenever an artist takes publicly some active politcial stance, automatically he is suspect to be dirty, especially if he/she is 100% aligned with the views of his gvmt. That's my view, i believe this 100%, but this is not the correct place to talk these things, i.e. pollute a nice guitar forum with political venom.
